Stunt driving

A 33-year-old man with a heavy foot has lost his vehicle for a week.

Belleville police report an officer conducting radar patrol on Old Highway 2 Tuesday morning clocked a vehicle travelling 59 km/h over the posted speed limit.

The vehicle was stopped and the driver was charged with stunt driving, given a court date in September and had his vehicle impounded for seven days.

Arrested for his own safety

A man who police state was having a “bad trip” was arrested for his own protection Tuesday.

Belleville police were called to the city’s west end just before 6:30 p.m. for a report of a man “acting in a bizarre manner in the middle of the street.”

Police located the 35-year-old and determined he was suffering from a street drug-induced reaction. The man was arrested for his own protection and held in custody until sober.

Driving complaint leads to multiple charges

A man and woman have each been charged following an incident in the downtown core early Wednesday.

City police were notified about a vehicle driving the wrong way on a one-way street in the downtown area just after midnight. Officers located the vehicle a short time later and found two adults in the vehicle, along with two young children in the back seat.

The 36-year-old woman provided a fake name to the officers, but the name she provided returned with an outstanding warrant. The woman was arrested and eventually her actual identify was confirmed. After learning the correct name it was also determined the 32-year-old man who had been driving was on court conditions not to be around the woman. The man was arrested for breaching his release conditions and resisting arrest.

Quantities of suspected crystal methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine and pills were located upon both of their arrests.

The man was additionally charged with four counts of trafficking and proceeds of crime. He was held for a bail hearing. The woman was also charged with four counts of trafficking, proceeds of crime and obstructing police. She was released with a September court date.
